When looking at the N20A it can mislead, and make you think it is just another Asus Eee PC. After taking a good look, it is obvious that they have no connection, fortunately for the market, which is getting a bit stuffy for all of the netbooks right now.
This is pretty much a complete notebook, with impressive hardware, with a small 12.1" WXGA screen. In this tiny package, the N20A packs the full potential of a Core 2 Duo platform while its little brother, the A10, uses the Intel Atom. The list of processors is quite satisfying: Intel Core 2 Duo P9400, P8600, P7350 or T5850.
The GPU used is the Intel X4500HD, on a GM45 Express chipset. This is a very nice combination with the processors, especially if you are a HD addict. You can use the HDMI port to send the picture to a bigger TV screen, if you find the 12.1" screen is not big enough. The hard drives available in this model are 160, 250 or 320GB, all 2.5", spinning at 5400RPM. The amount of RAM memory that can fit in N20A is 4GB in 2 x SODIMM sockets. Battery optionals include 2600, 4200 or 7800 mAh versions. An approximate weight of this device is about 1.85 kilograms with the smallest 3-cell battery.
The laptop includes CD/DVD burner, eSATA, mini D-Sub, 8-in-1 card reader, 3x USB ports, webcam, and a number of other hardware and software extras that can make your life a lot easier. Unfortunately the notebook lacks any firewire ports. For a wireless connection a v2.0 Bluetooth + EDR, Intel Wireless WiFi Link 5100 ABGN and in some regions a 3/3.5G antenna are included.
Prices start at $1000.
